Hi @Nasty7

NOT for free, and i'd be wary of buying it of the web.

So I cannot get into ESU with Ultimate unless I have Volume Licensing or an Azure right? If so what is the first year 50.00US right? I guess my idea of using Ultimate is not good as I don't have a Volume License or Azure.

Thanks

I love how condescending Microsoft sounds; "we understand that everyone is at a different point in the upgrade [sic] process". I hate to break it to you, Microsoft, but the people who haven't "upgraded" yet probably don't want to. Consider coming out with a good replacement for Windows 7.

Perhaps Microsoft ought to consider this for their 2020s logo:

I have dual booting to 7 and 10. Today I booted from 7 for the first time in a couple of weeks. Just to see if my laptop was going self destruct :)
All I got, was a Lenovo health check, an Adobe Flash update AND a Windows update. THis on January 15th.

So what was updated? This is what was reported;

FOR SOMR REASON, BARMAN DELETED MY ATTACHMENT. THis site wants a url for images. So I put screen shot in Dropbox and provided a link. If that is not allowed, please explain and tell me how I upload an image using the image icon.

Or don't bother. This site will be dead before long anyway.

Well, that most likely one of the last updates you will see, or maybe one more this month even. After that, yes, you can expect your laptop to self destruct!

For one reason or another, I thought I might keep using Win7. So I have it on my laptop's main SSD (SATA III port) while Win10 is on an mSATA SSD that is SATA II. Probably OK, but maybe I should delete Win 7 soon and move Win 10 over there.

You can't just swap the drives, or is one an External?

mSATA is just like a memory stick that fits into a slot on the laptop motherboard. 250GB though! The other drive is also an SSD (500GB) and it fits into the normal hard drive bay. On this Lenovo, there is also the option to put yet another drive in a caddy that fits into the DVD bay. But I only use that when cloning or whatever.

Do a little Cloning dance and move Windows 7 to another external, and 10 to the internal, and 7 back to the mSATA. See what kind of mess that makes for you haha

No need to move Win7 back. It's a dead OS now anyway.
